A mysterious Chinese woman arrives at Charlie Chan's home and is murdered there shortly afterward. The only clues are the ring with which she introduced herself, and the message "Capt K" she scrawled before dying.
The screenplay for this movie is almost identical with that for Mr. Wong in Chinatown. Both were written by Scott Darling.

Subject: Good movie
Mp4 is great quality. Story is as good as any Charlie Chan films I've seen. Good to see Burmingham and No 1 son, made the transition to a new Charlie Chan a little more palatable. No complaints
hey just enjoy these an easy relaxing hour of escape who care if is is not pd just be happy you can still watch these
While I can't do anything about the worthless howling of trolls like JNagarya, they're just a fact of internet life, I hope reviewers will limit their comments to those related to this film in the future. The Feature Films Forum is the proper place to discuss topics such as copyright.

It does no such thing. READ the law, beginning with the Definitions, instead of making it up in order to pretend stealing isn't stealing. You'll find the law at loc.gov.
Subject: Another Entertaining Charlie Chan Film
This is an entertaining Charlie Chan film with some new cast members. This time round Roland Winters plays Charlie Chan, while Warren Douglas and Louise Curry take on the respective roles of the police sergeant and the newspaperwoman. The film has a strong supporting cast. The plot is good and the suspense holds until the end.
Charlie Chan really is doing the work of Mr. Wong here. The story is identical, even the flaws in the screenplay are the same as in the original film. But the result is weaker in almost every aspect. Warren Douglas is no Grant Withers, Roland Winters is by far not so impressive as Boris Karloff (in this point I disagree with the previous reviewer. OK, no makeup in the whole world could make Boris Karloff´s face look asian and his accent is british. But that doesn´t matter because there is no need for a fake accent if the actor is playing his part believable.)
Not to be misunderstood: I recommend this film, it is well worth watching and good entertainment. Watch both movies and decide for yourself which one you like more.
Subject: Another Re-Make
Roland Winters has never been one of my favorite Charlie Chan's but the humor in this film helped offset the fact that it was the same story as Mr. Wong in Chinatown. Even Roland Winters made a better Chinese Detective then Boris Karloff.
